So are you more of a strummer or a wanker?
Strummer here, I had a tennis buddy over the other night and he said yeah I just want to learn to play guitar so I can sing and impress the girls and I said yeah, that's why I got into it and slowly realized I'd never really gone any further. I always thought the line from Sultans of Swing pretty much summed me up: "strictly rhythm he doesn't make it cry or sing". I know a million songs (been known to take creative license with lyrics though) and can play a canned solo or two but just don't ask me to improvise. I mean sure I can do it as long as you don't mind some cliche minor pentatonic meandering.
Trying to improve my creative wankery (on guitar) and am finding fodder in these two books:
Good books and seeing some improvement in self-study. Any other suggestions?
Your turn, and be honest, strummer or a wanker?
